Canyon Midstream Partners has entered into aggreements with XTO Energy (a subsidary with Exxon Mobil Corporation) and Apache Corporation for midestream services on Canyon’s James Lake System.
Canyon will be expanding its cryogenic gas processing plant in Ector County, Texas (also known as the James Lake Plant) from 70 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) to 100 MMcf/d by adding a 30 MMcf/d cryogenic turbo expansion train. The plant, part of Canyon’s James Lake System, currently consists of 60 miles of 12” trunkline and six field compressor stations providing low pressure gathering services to Ector, Andrews, Martin, Dawson and Gaines counties, Texas.
It is estimated that the plant will be finished in late 2014 and will deliver residue gas into the El Paso Natural Gas pipeline and deliver NGLs to the Sand Hills pipeline and the Chaparral pipeline in Ector County. Phase II of the project is currently in development which includes 100 MMcf/d cryogenic gas processing plant in Martin County and 60 additional miles of 12” trunkline that will expand into Howard and Borden counties, Texas. Phase II is expected to begin operations during the first half of 2015.
